Richard Sherman gets trolled by John Lynch, still signs with 49ers

San Francisco addressed one of those deficiencies with the stunning signing of former Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman and has nine draft picks with which to fill their remaining holes. Also pursuing him were the Green Bay Packers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Houston Texans, Tennessee Titans and Detroit Lions, the latter of whom was supposed to host him next week, per NFL Media. Should Hyde not come back, the 49ers would have to replace the 1,288 yards from scrimmage he had in 2017.

The young quarterback took the football world by storm after taking over as the San Francisco 49ers' starting quarterback in Week 13 last season.

As described in a feature by Peter King of The MMQB, the opportunity to play against the team that waived him on Friday was additional motivation to sign with the division-rival 49ers.

Sherman was acting as his own agent, it's believed. He defended his self-negotiated contract and made a simple analogy to explain why he didn't return to the Seahawks after they released him.

"He's such a versatile player, he's played both for us", coach Pete Carroll said last week at the scouting combine. They signed future Hall of Fame cornerback Richard Sherman to a three-year, incentive-laden contract that, according to ESPN's Josina Anderson, is worth up to $39.15 million. After a physical by the 49ers medical staff, he met with general manager John Lynch and chief contract negotiator Paraag Marathe for about five hours. "We can put this in the end zone!"

The statement is an admission that the nondisclosure agreement exists and that it directly involves Trump. Clifford had violated the agreement and enjoined her from, among other things, filing this lawsuit ".

Lynch said: "I promise you, we won't throw it this time". The fan called Sherman a "traitor".

With all of this considered, Sherman said playing his former team at least twice per year factored into his decision.

"We had mixed emotions on our show today just about Richard Sherman", Neal said Monday morning. Byron Maxwell, who was brought back following Sherman's season-ending Achilles injury, is also a free agent.

While it's unknown exactly the paycut Seattle wanted Sherman to take, it's surely less than $10 million for the 2018 season. Sherman has won four Pro Bowls and three All-Pro nominations throughout his career.

If that is indeed true, the 29-year-old Sherman makes a pretty good point as to why he chose to head to San Francisco over staying in Seattle. Sherman would get $8 million in base salary for each season, with one catch: The money doesn't become fully guaranteed until the third day of the league year in March 2019.
